Also, how realistic would it be to pull in NYC stations?
80 miles away from NYC is a longshot.
Even still, you are 52 miles away from Albany. You should concentrate to see if you get those stations first.
As I mentioned in a previous post, get a big antenna from Radio Shack and try it out. Put it outdoors and run a short piece of coax to the TV as a test.
If the antenna can't pick up much, at least you can return it.
I have an old Radio Shack VU-190XR at my place in Middleburgh, and last time I was there, these were my readings on my strength meter on the tv.
At 20 miles away:
WRGB 6 @ 92%
WTEN 10 @ 67%
WNYT 13 @ 82%
WMHT 17 @ 87%
WXXA 23 @ 72%
WCWN 45 @ 61%
WKTV 2 @ 50% With antenna rotated NE
My house is pretty high up on the mountain. This is just to give you a general idea what reception is like.
Here is my tvfool report. Even though I'm close, I have 2 edge reception.http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...8d17c98fd060ae
